A lot has changed in the past seven days. Unfortunately, my company had to make some cuts and I was among the ones that were let go. It was a total shock at first, but within a matter of hours my mood did a total 180 and I was, well, excited. Yeah, yeah…the broken record: everything happens for a reason…blah blah blah. But it’s true. I’m truly ready for my next adventure, whatever it may be.

I learned so many valuable lessons over the past (almost) four years, both professionally and personally. I wouldn’t trade that experience for the world. My job taught me about having visual standards and I developed my own aesthetic from being exposed to amazing work everyday. I met lifelong friends and mentors. My coworkers are what I will miss the most and, if I’m being honest, what kept me there for so long.

This week has been dedicated to getting my resumé and portfolio in order and, I have to say, it is a BEAST of an undertaking. But I’m taking my time because I want it to communicate who I am; not just what I can do.

So now I start a new chapter. I’m not sure what it will be, but I’m so psyched to find out. I’ve heard similar stories before about people being laid off from their job and then finding their life’s work. I hope mine plays out in a similar manner. I’ll keep you all posted on where I land. Thanks for being my outlet.

Where ever you land, you will surely be on your feet and thriving, not just surviving.
We are very proud of who you are, not just what you do.
luv, mom and dad
